The Library’s Culture Quest series will feature award-winning author & educator, Elizabeth Hand.  Ms. Hand is the bestselling author of sixteen genre-spanning novels and six collections of short fiction and essays. Her work has received multiple Shirley Jackson, World Fantasy, and Nebula Awards, among other honors, and several of her novels have been New York Times and Washington Post Notable Books.  Her critically acclaimed novels featuring Cass Neary, “one of literature’s great anti- heroes” [Katherine Dunn] have been compared to those of Patricia Highsmith and are in development for a UK TV series.  She is a longtime reviewer, critic, and essayist for the Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, and FSF Magazine, among many others.  Much of her work focuses on artists, particularly those outside the mainstream, as well as the world-altering effects of climate change. She is on faculty of the Stonecoast MFA Program in Creative Writing.  Her next novel, HOKULOA ROAD, a noir novel set in Hawaii, will be published next year.  Ms. Hand grew up in Pound Ridge and her parents still reside here.  Under optimum conditions, she divides her time between the coast of Maine and North London.

“This writer’s Promethean project, her fire–stealing strategy, has always been, as Cass Neary’s is and Mary Shelley’s was, art itself — the act of creation and all its frightful ambiguities.”
— Terrence Rafferty, New York Times Book Review
